Ring Shots 2014

We make it a point to photograph the wedding rings at every wedding we do. Its one of our favorite time creatively because we get to stretch out mental muscles and try to whip out something with at least one or more of the following attributes: sparkly, quirky, funny, beautiful, confusing, and/or show stopping.

The typical process of this almost always the same. We both take a break during the dance party and get the rings from the couple. We grab our video light and macro lens and head to a relatively quiet spot where we can concentrate. For the setting we either take a few items from the centerpieces, use any other decorations from the venue, find a reflective surface, or all of the above. Some of the things we have used are feathers, water, mirrors, sparkly purses, a sari, lots and lots of flowers, a tin lunchbox, a newspaper, a candle votive, mardi gras beads, magazine pages, food and lots of food, champagne, you name it! Once we have a couple of choices try out a few set ups and take home about 3 image set ups for every weddings, (and a gazillion photos because it’s really hard to tell if your manual focusing was spot on until you have the images big on your computer). One set-up is a safe but pretty shot, and the other two are us trying something really creative. If when we get home and take a look we aren’t crazy about the creative one, we just use the pretty one because why not?? It’s always an experiment since we have that option with these.

Here are the ring shots we did this year. For a scavenger hunt, we will give a Starbucks card to the first person who comments with the one set of rings that we posted two images of in this post, (because we just couldn’t choose one from that day).

Hey there!

This is a photo of me in a burger bar in Stockholm Sweden. I am about to drink the best beer I have ever had. It's a pretty important photo of me. I just remember feeling filled with joy and so so glad to be alive. That's a good place to start on getting to know me.

 

I like to travel.

I like beer.

I like the person who was across the table from me. Any guesses who?

where we hang
